A lot of girls try and surf like the guys, which sometimes works for the stockier body types but someone like Steph knows how to use the difference in body movement to her advantage. The surfs very flowy and has that "longboard girl" grace but still can do proper turns etc
Carissa and Steph are the two that I will watch their heats. Both surf soooo good with totally different approaches Carissa just rips and Im suprised she doesnt have more titles than she already does. Like what someone said earlier, Steph has a very feminine and graceful approach that just oozes style while still being agressive. Dig her surfing a lot. Caroline Marks hurts my eyes to watch yet she gets tons of hype. The younger crew coming up are surfing really good too.
be interesting to see both Lisa and Steph go at it in their prime and makes you wonder what her impact would have been had she not had a kid and took a time out. Always thought she had the best style back then and she did it without the butt floss drop in distractions they use these days although I'm not complaining.
